Sony Legacy celebrates the 30th Anniversary of Rosanne Cash‘s pioneering LP King’s Record Shop with a special edition 180-gram vinyl release and digital download with bonus tracks. Released on June 26, 1987, the album would prove a pivotal one not only in the career of Cash, but in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. The set would also have the distinction of marking the first time a female artist had ever had four #1 singles on the Billboard Country charts from a single record. Cash’s covers of her father’s “Tennessee Flat Top Box”, John Hiatt’s “The Way We Make A Broken Heart”, John Stewart’s “Runaway Train” as well as “If You Change Your Mind,” a song she’d written with steel guitar player Hank DeVito, all climbed to the top of the chart.

Produced by Rodney Crowell (Rosanne’s then-husband), the set features a stellar band of players including Crowell, Vince Gill, Patty Smyth, Benmont Tench, Steve Winwood, and Randy Scruggs.

Rosanne Cash – The Real Me

(click song title above to listen)

This is the real me, breakin’ down at last,
Hey, it’s the real me, crawlin’ out of my past,
Baby, the real me, wants the real you, so bad

Rosanne Cash‘s pioneering King’s Record Shop was released on June 26, 1987 and it would prove a pivotal album not only in the career of Cash, but in the emergence of Americana as an heir to traditional country music. The album would also have the distinction of marking the first time a female artist had ever had four #1 singles on the Billboard Country charts from a single album.

King’s Record Shop is named after a store in Louisville, Kentucky which was owned by Gene King, younger brother of Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter Pee Wee King (“Tennessee Waltz”). Produced by Rodney Crowell (Rosanne’s then-husband), the set features a stellar band of players including Crowell, Vince Gill, Patty Smyth, Benmont Tench, Steve Winwood, and Randy Scruggs.

Celebrate the 30th anniversary of this classic with a special 180-gram vinyl edition including bonus tracks available via digital download coming Friday July 7th!

Cy Coleman – I’ve Got Your Number

(click song title above to listen)

On June 17th, the fine folks at Sony Legacy released a remastered digital version of Cy Coleman‘s dapper debut vocal album If My Friends Could See Me Now, Cy Coleman Sings His Own Big Hits With Orchestra. The set, originally released in 1967 on Columbia Records “was conceived on 52nd street, mulled over in Beverly Hills, rehearsed on the French Riviera and recorded in London”. Credit Des Champ, Gordon Franks and Peter Jeffries – three distinguished British arrangers and pub crawlers – for the fine arrangements.

“In an era where ‘singer-composer’ has often come to mean someone who finds himself in front of a microphone with nothing to sing and simply takes matters into his own hands, I’m hoping this album strikes a responsive chord among those of us who stubbornly measure the top-forty hit songs not by the week, but by the decade, or as in the case of one recalcitrant quite close to this writer, the half-century.” Edward Keibart (from the original liner notes). Mission accomplished!
